After the untimely demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, many artists are speaking against Bollywood groupism which hampers young talents in the industry. While Kangana Ranaut's controversial statements about 'mafia gangs' have been getting much attention, music director AR Rahman reveals his personal experience with the same. In an interview with a radio show, the music director said that a Hollywood gang has been spreading false rumours about him and stopping him from working in Bollywood.
He said, "I don’t say no to good movies, but I think there is a gang, which, due to misunderstandings, is spreading some false rumours. When Mukesh Chhabra came to me, I gave him four songs in two days. He told me, ‘Sir, how many people said don’t go, don’t go to him (AR Rahman) and they told me stories after stories.’ I heard that, and I realised, yeah okay, now I understand why I am doing less (work in Hindi films) and why the good movies are not coming to me. I am doing dark movies, because there is a whole gang working against me, without them knowing that they are doing harm.”
He further added, "People are expecting me to do stuff, but there is another gang of people preventing that from happening. It is fine, because I believe in destiny, and I believe that everything comes from God. So, I am taking my movies and doing my other stuff. But all of you are welcome to come to me. Make beautiful movies, and you are welcome to come to me.”
